During his Fox News show on Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson compared the recent comments by CNN host Don Lemon with comments he made in 2013.
Carlson highlighted how Lemon said "black lives matter" does not mean "all black lives matter" during a discussion with actor Terry Crews. In other comments, he mocked reports about crime rising in Democratic-led cities. Carlson played some comments Lemon made in 2013 where he addressed the black community.
“Now if you’re running a channel like CNN, you want dumb people on TV because they are compliant, they will say what they’re told, they will tell the audience what the moment demands, they will never stray from the script, and that’s exactly what Mr. Lemon is doing,” Carlson said. “But just seven years ago, it was a different country and people were kind of allowed to say what they thought was true. And so at the time, here’s what Don Lemon was saying about black communities.”
During the 2013 clip from CNN, Lemon said:
More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock, that means absent fathers. And the studies show that a lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison, and the cycle continues. So please, black folks, as I said, if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m not talking to you. Pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as acceptable behavior.
Pay close attention to the hip-hop and rap culture that many of you embrace, a culture that glorifies everything I just mentioned. Thug and reprehensible behavior, a culture that is making a lot of people rich, just not you and it’s not going to.
"Wow," Carlson said at the conclusion of the clip and then wondered what would happen if he or Chris Cuomo said something like this now.
Political commentator Dave Rubin gave his thoughts on Tucker's segment, calling it an "absolutely staggering take down" of Lemon.
